Parents for Inclusion and the Alliance for Inclusive Education

Parents for Inclusion and the Alliance for Inclusive Education are national charities based at 336 Brixton Road, London SW9 7AA. The main aim of our organisations is to become effective allies to young people who are in danger of exclusion, from ordinary schools, from play, even within the family. We train professionals, help empower parents, and give the young people a voice. They are grass-roots organisations run by disabled people and parents themselves, and as such are largely unfunded. www.parentsforinclusion.org

4 to 6 September 2009

Come and celebrate the 175th anniversary of William Morris’s birth in the magical setting of Kelmscott House, Morris’s home for the last 18 years of his life. It was here that Morris developed his skills in carpet weaving and printed the Kelmscott Chaucer and Jane and May, his wife and daughter, produced beautiful embroideries.

Our festival will take place in the Coach House, where Morris once held meetings of the Socialist League and speakers included George Bernard Shaw & W B Yeats.

The weekend will include music, song, theatre, talks, a local Arts & Crafts walk, as well as fun and party food.
